Trade Skills Centre

St Joseph’s is an inclusive school catering for all students’ needs and pathways, and providing an excellent education in preparation for work or further education.

The St Joseph the Worker Trade Skills Centre enables students to complete Certificate II in Construction and also have the opportunity to complete selected units from Certificate III (Apprenticeship level) training packages. The Centre has been purpose built to accommodate industry standard equipment and an environment that students would encounter “on the job”. The school works closely with TAFE, North East Vocational College and local industry to determine the most suitable qualification to be delivered according to industry trends and requirements. Students then have opportunities to pursue career paths leading to employment within the industry.
